three color turks head bracelet 382

Experimenting with mixing three colors in a 9 x 13 design this piece has a dark grey, natural white in the center, and a light grey strand.

The design is a 9 x 13 weave which creates a nice 2" width that will fit a smaller wrist.

Circumference is 7 1/8" making it a medium-small with the usual shrinkage factor for the all cotton material.

The three color weave requires extra time to work up as the strands are all individually placed and tensioned.

Stitching the ends is a challenge as well. There are 6 strands that must be bound together.
